Kick Off Summer At Kings Dominion During The Memorial Weekend Salute
Need a stress relief from the daily grind? Call some friends, grab a date, or the kids, and ride some roller coasters this weekend! Kings Dominion is celebrating Memorial Day all weekend long with extended fireworks shows, free admission for military, the opening of its 20-acre water park, live entertainment, and more during the Memorial Weekend Salute event May 26-28.
Guests can enjoy live military bands, fireworks displays each night (which are much better than the nightly displays) plus all of the favorite thrills including the new Twisted Timbers hybrid roller coaster. All active and retired military personnel will receive complimentary entry into the park with valid military I.D. or DD214. Discounted tickets for family members and dependents are available at the park’s ticket sales office.
Additionally, the park’s water park, Soak City, opens for the season on Saturday, May 26 and is included with park admission. Guests can cool off on more than 20 slides, bring the little tykes to the interactive splash pad, or take a dip in the two massive wave pools.
Memorial Day weekend is just the kickoff for making new memories! Summer at Kings Dominion also brings the return of favorite shows such as Origins: A Cirque Experience (debuts June 16) as well as five new live entertainment options this summer:
- Soak City Soakers – Become a part of Team Fire or Team Ice as they invite you to join their ultimate aqua battle with various challenges and activities that bring the splash zone to you.
- Deep End Dance Party – Popular music, dancing, pool games and trivia are guaranteed to make your visit to the park this summer really sizzle.
- The Chart Toppers – This strolling brass-band will have you dancing to old fashioned favorites and all new contemporary hits as they roam around the park providing the perfect soundtrack to your day.
